Jordan Pickford has revealed Marco Silva wants him to act as Everton's sweeper as the Blues boss tries to employ an aggressive pressing style. But Pickford says the Portuguese coach is still happy for him to hit the ball long when he has it in order for Everton to play off from second balls. The 24-year-old says his game is based on a type of “risk management” that Silva has only tweaked while the club's goalkeeping coach, Hugo Oliveira, tries to add elements of a European style to his technique. “If the lads are higher up in the pitch and are in their final third, if they counter on us and play a ball over the top, I'm more front foot based to sweep up,” Pickford explains. “But I would say I was quite that anyway. “As for playing out from the back he encourages that a bit more but it's not always about playing from the back, it's risk management, the risk factor of it. “So Marco isn't always on about playing out from the back everytime because … [Read more...] about Jordan Pickford has a new job now Silva is here
Quitting a new job
A leading Tory has resigned from a key role at a council run by his mum. Coun Michael Green has stepped down from the cabinet at South Ribble where his mother Mary is leader.Coun Green (inset), who is also a cabinet member on Lancashire County Council, says a heavy workload at County Hall has made it increasingly difficult for him to do both jobs at the same time.“I have an important portfolio at LCC, with responsibility for economic development, environment and planning,” he told the Post. “This role is becoming busier, so I will be working hard on many projects which will be very important for our local residents.”Coun Green’s departure from the top table at South Ribble after just 15 weeks was described as “a huge loss” by the council’s deputy leader Coun Caroline Moon, who joined the cabinet at the same time as him in mid-May.“I know Michael has a big workload and he did say at a recent group meeting he was considering whether … [Read more...] about South Ribble Tory quits a top job in mum’s council team
I have a 132 VW Cross Polo with 71,000kms on the clock, which I want to trade in against an automatic SUV. Driver support seating is important for my back. I am interested in a hybrid to save on fuel costs and tax rate, and need an automatic because I have restricted use at times of my left foot. A five-seater is fine as it is for two older adults. Am finding it difficult to navigate the full range of SUVs and so far have test driven a Ford EcoSport and a Hyundai Kona Premium, which I liked but found expensive. Gillian: You didn't mention how much you have to spend but, assuming a new automatic EcoSport and Kona are out of budget (both around €30k), I will go with options around €20k to €25k. Other automatic, nice specced small SUV models to consider are: Nissan Juke 1.6SV CVT, €24,195; Opel Crossland X 1.2 SE auto, €25,995; Renault Captur 1.5 dCi Dynamique Nav EDC, €24,890; Seat Arona 1.0 TSi SE DSG, €22,575; and Suzuki Vitara 1.6 SZ-T auto, … [Read more...] about Auto SUV?

London's Stock Exchange has found itself in the middle of some confusion after announcing David Schwimmer as its new chief executive. No, it's not the man who played Ross in the sitcom Friends. The man hired is actually a former Goldman Sachs banker with the same name, BBC News reports. He's replacing Xavier Rolet in London's most lucrative role after Mr Rolet quit following a boardroom argument in 2017. Twitter was quick to notice the new CEO's name, flooding social media with Friends jokes and GIFs. "I'm sure David Schwimmer of London Stock Exchange has heard all the jokes about being from Friends before but has David Schwimmer from Friends heard jokes about being from the London Stock Exchange?" one user wrote. "David Schwimmer may be the new head of the London Stock Exchange Group, but Jennifer Aniston has been the Senior HR Manager at Samsung Electronics for over eight years," another said.
